Goodreads summary

By blood, by word, by magic…

Most can’t touch the power. But Liv Warren is special – a paranormal tracker who follows the scent of blood.

Liv makes her own rules, and the most important one is trust no one.

But when her friend’s daughter goes missing, Liv has no choice but to find the girl. Thanks to a childhood oath, Liv can’t rest until the child is home safe. But that means trusting Cam Caballero, the former lover forbidden to her.

Bound by oath and lost in desire for a man she cannot have, Liv is racing to save the child from a dark criminal underworld where secrets, lies, trauma and danger lurk around every corner…every touch…every kiss.

And more blood will be spilled before it’s over…

Why do I want to read this book?

I love the other series by Rachel Vincens so that makes me curious about this series. 

Review: Pride ( Shifters #3 ) by Rachel Vincent

Published 09/03/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Pride
Author:          Rachel Vincent
Pages:             425
Catagory:      Fantasy, Shifters

The story:

I’m on trial for my life. Falsely accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend—and killing him to cover up the crime. Infecting a human is one of three capital offenses recognized by the Pride—along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human.
I’m two for three. A goner.
Now we’ve discovered a rogue stray terrorizing the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. It’s up to us to find and stop him before a human discovers us. With my lover Marc’s help, I think I can protect the vulnerable girl from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.
If I survive my own trial…

The view of a book addict:

I really loved this book, I just couldn’t wait to hear what the Council had in store for Faythe. The last book left us with a cliffhanger so I had to read this book to know what was going to happen to Faythe and her family.
I was suprised by the other main storyline that unfolded in this book. A new chapter in the life of the werecats and how are they going to deal with this? It made the book even more exciting to read.

The verdict of a book addict:

For me this book was a real page turner, I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. Another amazing book in a series I really love!

Review: Rogue (shifters#2) by Rachel Vincent

Published 05/03/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Rogue ( shifters #2 )
Author:          Rachel Vincent
Pages:             394
Catagory:      Fantasy, shifter

The story:

Okay, so cats don t always land on their feet. 

I know that better than most. Since rejoining the Pride, I ve made big decisions and even bigger mistakes: the kind paid for with innocent lives. As the first and only female enforcer, I have plenty to prove to my father, the Pride, and myself. And with murdered toms turning up in our territory, I m working harder than ever, though I always find the energy for a little after-hours recreation with Marc, my partner both on- and off-duty.

But not all of my mistakes are behind me. We re beginning to suspect that the dead are connected to a rash of missing human women and that they can all be laid at my feet–two or four, take your pick. And one horrible indiscretion may yet cost me more than I can bear..

The view of a book addict:

Normally I find it hard to start reading the next book in a series right away. On one hand I want to know what happens next but on the other hand I just need a break from the characters. But since it’s shifters month I dived into the second book right away. And I have to say this time I didn’t need this break, I really wanted to know what would happen next with Faythe and her family.
You just get sucked right back into the story and the storyline unfolds itself in the first few chapters. That makes it easy to get into the book because you just want to know what’s happening and how Faythe and her family are going to deal with the problems tbey face.

The verdict of a book addict:

This is an amazing second book, I loved the first book and I found it hard to believe the second book could be better but it is! I can’t wait to start reading book three in this wonderful series!

Review: Stray ( Shifters #1 ) by Rachel Vincent

Published 04/03/2011 by supernaturalreadingaddict

Title:               Stray ( Shifters #1 )
Author:          Rachel Vincent
Pages:             618
Catagory:      Fantasy, shifters

The story:

I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds.
Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked.
I’d been warned about Strays—werecats without a Pride—constantly on the lookout for someone like me: attractive, female and fertile. I fought him off, but then learned two of my fellow tabbies had disappeared.
This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back…for my own protection. Yeah, right. But I’m no meek kitty. I’ll take on whatever—and whoever—I have to in order to find my friends. Watch out, Strays—’cause I got claws, and I’m not afraid to use them….

( taken from Goodreads )
The view of a book addict:

The first book of a series I think I’m going to love! The main character Faythe doesn’t let anyone tell her what she should do with her life and I like that kind of heroine in a book. Although I had a little trouble getting into the book at first because of all the diffrent characters and their role in Faythe’s life, once into the story I didn’t want to stop reading.
I loved the storyline and I caught myself thinking: “just one more chapter” every time I reached the end of a chapter.

The verdict of a book addict:

So this was the first book in the shifters series and I just can’t wait to start reading the next book. If you like the Night huntress series and Anita blake ( at least the first Anita Blake novels ) you’re going to love this series.
